Organic Mama Spa: The Best $50 Massage in the City

City Travel, Health & Safety, New York City, Spa & Beauty — By on April 30, 2010 at 6:00 am

Tucked among the crowded city streets of Manhattan’s Lower East Side is an oasis of calm called Mama Spa. We swear, our bodies are buzzing and minds blissfully quiet every time we walk out of this health and wellness center. Located just south of Rivington at 141 Allen Street, Mama Spa is celebrating its first anniversary and Mother’s Day by rolling out some uber-affordable specials from now until May 9th.

You’ll never find a cheaper massage in the city that melts away tension while letting you experience the balancing ambience of a spa. During this promotion, first-time visitors can get an hour massage for only $50 (regularly $70). Mama Spa has a full menu of services–everything from acupuncture sessions to Anti-Wrinkle Facials to mani/pedis to thermal salt soaks in their in-house Jacuzzi–all at recession friendly prices.

Eastern medicine touts that our mental and physical health is connected to pressure points and meridians in the body. Whether you opt for a Swedish, shiatsu, or aromatherapy massage, the Chinese therapists seem to be able to intuitively pinpoint where blockages are.

The spa’s design combines the philosophy of Feng Shui and Chinese medicine by using colors such as green, red, yellow, white and black to represent the five elements—wood, fire, earth, metal and water. We recommend arriving early so you can enjoy the relaxation lounge complete with a juice bar, and the sauna, steam room and rain showers in the changing area ($10 extra for steam & sauna but so worth it!). Order the fresh apple-carrot juice post-treatment.

Here’s the lowdown of special offers for new customers:

One-hour massage: $50 (save $20!)

Massage package: Buy 10 Get 4 Free (That comes out to $50 per massage)

Become a member: If you pay $50 for the yearly membership, you get 15% off all treatments.
